Can your unit fit "Just one more"?
Girlguiding UK’s current focus is on encouraging Leaders to do their bit to help us grow guiding by finding 'room for just one more'. Did you know that if every unit in Girlguiding UK increased in size by one more one girl, around 27,500 more girls would have access to everything guiding had to offer?
